Is your birth control in need of a makeover? YAZ, the combination birth control pill, is offering you the chance to make over its birth control case. The contest was launched by Nina Garcia (Project Runway, Elle Magazine), Step Up Women’s Network and Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals, to give aspiring designers the chance to re-design this accessory.
“The design challenge we’re posing is a fashion transformation unlike any other,” said Garcia. “We’re taking an iconic accessory, the birth control case, and asking aspiring designers to take a shot at redesigning it into a chic, more sophisticated carrying case that they could slip into their purses.”
Entries will be accepted until June 30, 2008. The winner will receive $10,000 to enroll in design classes or to purchase design software and materials. The winner will be announced on or before the start of Spring 2009 Fashion Week in the Fall.
